Peabody Transcriptathon

Funding from the National Historical Publications & Records Commission (NHPRC) has supported the digitization of 4,000 hours of public media in the Peabody Awards Collection. These programs are being made accessible through the American Archive of Public Broadcasting (AAPB). Brown Media is asking your help to expand access to these historic programs by helping correct computer generated transcripts. AAPB transcriptathons enlist a virtual community of volunteer transcribers who help to correct the simple errors made in speech-to-text transcripts.
